With more insert shapes that are compatible with more tool holders, more manufacturers will be able the take advantage of the technologyClick image to enlargeSandvik Coromant has updated its GC4415 and GC4425 steel turning grades with more insert shapes, making them ideal for manufacturers operating in mass and batch production set-ups.

The GC4425 is a machinist’s first choice for steel turning, outperforming competition in a majority of steel turning applications. The new grade provides improved wear resistance, heat resistance and toughness, considerably expanding the application range. Grade GC4415 is used when more heat resistance is needed.

The correct insert shape is vital for effective finishing and roughing operations, and the insert shape should be selected relative to the entering angle accessibility required of the tool.

The GC4415 and GC4425 inserts show superior wear resistance over competing inserts, which contributes towards extended tool life and predictable performance. This also minimizes material waste, both from the workpiece and the insert. With these benefits in mind, offering extra insert shapes that are compatible with more tool holders means that more customers will be able the take advantage of GC4415 and GC4425.
